Gaming can be essential part of life for avid gamers, and with games that lasts players hundreds of levels to progress, large piece of territory to conquer, plenty of villains to eliminate, and multiple days to complete, ability to save a game playing progress has been important to ensure that player can continue the game after a pause, sleep or rest.

While some online multi-player games may save and store the game progress in the centralized servers or cloud locations, most games do however save and store the saved game progress files on local computer, typically in My Documents or My Games folder, or inside the game’s install directory.

Locally saved games are prone to risk of accidental lost or deletion, file corruption, file wiping due to virus infection, hard disk failure, reformat PC, reinstalling Windows, or even accidental overwritten and replacement by another save by the game. In addition, the saved games will also indirectly lost or left out when users move to a new gaming computer, or player may want to share the saved games with others.

While the saved game files can be manually copied, the process may be tedious, cumbersome and may not be complete as there may be many locations which files can be saved. GameSave Manager is a software application that can help gamers to automatically save the saved game files. With GameSave Manager, users can easily backup, restore and transfer any gamesave(s), removing the need to manually navigate and track through all of the different directories to locate the gamesaves.

GameSave Manager

Game Save Manager has built-in native support for around 500 games, which allows users to use GameSave Manager to identify and backup the files saved by the supported games immediately without additional configuration from within “Backup Gamesave(s)” command. Even if the game isn’t supported by default, user can use the “Custom GameSave Entries” option to add the support manually, by specifying the path to the locations where the saved games are located.

GameSave Manager is now into version 2, which supports saving to DropBox (aff), allowing all the saved games to be duplicated and transferred to remote cloud location, in addition to continue support to backup locally, especially removable drives. The backup saved games can then be restored when there is need, including moving and restore at another computer.

The stable releases of GameSave Manager is available for free download at gsm.duncsweb.com, and the program supports 32-bit and 64-bit Windows. Supported games in GameSave Manager is added via database update regularly.

The full list of all the officially supported games included in the GSM v2.0 (Build 214) includes:
